Today we are excited to share Melissa & Troy’s engagement session on the blog – not only did we just photograph their beautiful engagement session, but next week we have the pleasure of capturing their wedding day as well. The story of how Melissa and Troy met is truly one written in the stars and actually could be the start of any rom-com. It all began almost 4 years ago while Melissa and Troy were working for the same company in the field of public accounting. Melissa lived and worked in the Huston office at the time, Troy was working in Chicago. Melissa was assigned an extended project in Chicago where she inherited a previous team member’s laptop and user name. Every day she would log into her laptop as “Troy Carlson”. It was about a month into the project when a senior team manager let the Chicago team know they were having a happy hour after a long day’s work. Melissa’s project transplant team decided to crash the Chicago happy hour which was being held at the top of the historic Tribune Tower. Let’s just say it was a good decision. When Melissa arrived she met a tall (slightly tipsy) guy who introduced himself as “Troy”, Melissa said, “Wait! Troy Carlson?” The rest, as they say, is history. Destiny wrote their love story in the stars long before these two had ever known.
Now Melissa and Troy both reside together in the Chicago area and our beautiful city is a large part of their love story. It was a natural choice to have their engagement session downtown and along the lakefront. We wanted to be sure to capture some of the magic of the Tribune Tower and work that into their session as well. These two are naturals in front of the camera – congratulations you two! We look forward to celebrating with you again next week.
Session Locations: Tribune Tower, Wrigley Building, Chicago Riverwalk, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium
